activists grew more vocal in their opposition to a covert u.s. military sites in northern england and reagan era star wars project saying they have a right to know what's going on there. the shutters are up in denmark as the country passes strict new laws on border controls which are already causing anger from its european neighbors who say it might reach agreements on visa free travel. and nato is under far over claims that the un's libyan arms embargo was good enough the lawyers say they had intercepted a shipment of belgian made weapons intended for them. and business rating agencies are playing hardball with greece that i don't foresee that may consider

a base u.s. control which the british government and british people have no control men with hill is the largest intel gathering and surveillance base outside the us there are thirty two satellite dishes housed inside the huge golf ball structures which can eavesdrop on telephone calls faxes and e-mails from around the world it's been operational since the one nine hundred sixty s. but now it's set to become part of the controversial missile defense shield to alert the u.s. to any launch of ballistic missiles as in poland and the czech republic where the u.s. also plan to cite bases locals who worry that having a facility here will put the area in danger heightening the risk of an attack by anyone who wants to disable the shield but unlike in eastern europe the government here has put up no fight at all in fact it doesn't even know what goes on here
2:03 pm
there isn't a single british official in parliament or in the intelligence services who could give you a full picture of what is happening in this case it's the culmination of former us president ronald reagan's dream as his statue is unveiled in london on monday menwith hill embodied what reagan in busiest in the early warning missile detection system that was dubbed the star wars program it secretive based for away from u.s. soil and some say it's a step towards the u.s. domination and militarization of space people demonstrate here campaigning for the closure of this space and the others like it around the country they want to reclaim this land and bring it back under the control of the british government and its people it's not working as a. then withheld becomes part of the missile defense shield it's building another gulf satellite strike so bringing the total to thirty three despite local and international opposition growing not richie's think the u.s. influence in europe. menwith hill yorkshire. the prospect of
2:04 pm
a u.s. led missile defense shield in europe is also set alarm bells ringing here in moscow and nato is failing to provide legal guarantees that the system won't be aimed against russia and is also rejecting proposals for a joint shield later this hour we'll hear from a leading american scientist who says a ban was administration is continuing bush era policies. when the bush plan was first discarded by president obama when he came into power there was a lot of whole new system would be more agreeable to the russians but now that we have actually numbers instead of being less of a concern going from the bush administration to be obama. this has raised all sorts of red flags in russia. in an interview coming your way at a later hearing r.t. stricter border controls are to be implemented in denmark as the country's
2:05 pm
parliament has voted in favor of permanent new legislation that will mean more security checkpoints at the country's ports and its border with germany some e.u. officials are already condemned the move saying it might contradict mainland europe so much for him to open border agreement not easily and has this report. the genius officials insist that this is to prevent drug flow and illegal migrants from entering the country but the move has been regarded as a bad sign not just by the left wing politicians and the opposition in denmark itself but also has been severely opposed to by the e.u. officials in brussels and especially by denmark's neighbor germany they insist that this is a violation of the should get agreement of the open borders in europe and they also say that this is not a wise move at all to make during a particularly volatile time for the european union when countries they're bickering over border disputes and over cash and money issues some believe that
2:06 pm
this actually may signal the end off united europe but the danish officials insist that this will not cause any damage to the free flow of traffic tourists and transportation across the border we have to remember that this is not the very first border dispute of course the problem of really go right this particularly bitter one right now for the european union earlier this year france and italy have entered of rather bitter dispute over the flow of illegal migrants across their borders and we also have to take to keep in mind the fact that extremely well as far as the situation in northern africa is not going to help the situation in any way since most of the migrants who do come to europe who do flood countries like denmark belgium war is silly and france actually do come mostly from the northern african region so this particular move by the danish officials may actually send quite a worrisome signal to other european countries who may also follow suit. and more
2:07 pm
than that messerschmitt he's a european parliament member from them says his country is right to take action to tackle immigration. all over the european union where more and more people are realizing that the solutions we have been given by brussels another ride with the right ones for a modern. world where fighting trafficking which is the one of the most horrible crimes we see of course we're fighting drugs we're fighting smugglers and various crimes and illegal immigrants it's clear that we see what we see in the entire middle east is to shoot pressure on the european borders and i think we have a national as well as international responsibility to avoid that illegal immigrants come to our country so that they create in their mind in an environment environment that is hostile to those who are legally here i think it's reasonable to use public spending to ensure the everyday lives for the change population i mean that's one of the main reasons why you want to pay taxes that you want to police the customs control the army here in whatever publicly funded institution to protect you so i
2:08 pm
think it's reasonable that we are spending some. one hundred million kroner on this matter because we have seen the increase of criminal activity due to the lack of control so now we pay a little bit more but we get more control and thereby more safety. by the way on our web site r.t. dot com we're asking for your opinion about what the revival of border controls between e.u. members means for the future of the union the constrain and see what the results are so far want to run the whole think that the end of the e.u. is the only way to fend off an immigration crisis eighteen percent think that europe has failed to find unity in troubled times and the same number say it's just a temporary setback in the integration process while we can see that moment eighteen percent think that the e.u. has proved to be workable to cast your vote r.t. dot com. libyan officials say they seized two ships on route from qatar carrying weapons intended for gadhafi rebels said to have been carrying over
2:09 pm
one hundred belgian made rifles and with thousands of rounds of ammunition so far only the french have admitted to supplying weapons to libya's government forces and the shipment of arms to libya is a violation of international law well that's according to marty darrius nasm roa he's from the center for research on globalization. definitely is via violating the united nations sanction as well as international law there's something called the a t t and under the a.t.t. they cannot supply arms to the rebels this is not new news either they've been saying this from march they've been sending arms to the rebels don't know i haven't been restricted in libya i've i've i've traveled i've seen the frontier from tunisia to tripoli. to people that are resisting this are the actual people who are libyan people there's no real organized military here is the people the people of libya have taken arms to defend this country against nato if you go to the checkpoints you're going to see the regular people they called people people who
2:10 pm
are volunteers that it's not strictly a military a military force that's been fought against by the rebels or whatever you want to call them the transitional council forces revolution whatever you want to call them they are a minority and they are being armed by the outside in some cases they are better weapons than the actual libyan military the ball is in needles court the balls are in libya's court there is fighting defensively that's the reality of the situation the ones who are being bonded onto airplanes overhead it's not it in their hands so right now i don't see nato winning unless they invade or they continue to armed the rebels put a it's will it's frankly it's too soon to say and i heard that hillary clinton said we're going to follow this to the end i don't think this is looking good for nato and if they invade they have to be fools every house in tripoli. they had neighborhood defenses set up in every single houses aren't at all the people here are caring like it's if they didn't like it that it would turn those weapons are
2:11 pm
here. and a lot more still to come on the program this hour including brand new ways to satisfy china's energy hunger some countries deciding against a future funding for sheba disaster china searching for advanced technology to make atomic power safer. and before the children of the recognition of fragile skin and their battle to improve treatment for the problem here in russia. those stories still to come but first a dutch court has ruled and evelyn's was responsible for the deaths of three bosnian muslims after the fall of. the bosnian war the judges have ordered the government to pay out compensation to the well it's a very skilled if it comes with support staff for the dutch un peacekeeping force are among those muslims who took shelter in the un protected enclave the men were executed by bosnian serbs when the peacekeepers forced them out of the compound along with thousands of. muslim men and boys were killed in tripoli in july ninety ninety five but it's not a part it she's
2:12 pm
a political analyst based in belgrade has told me on r.t. that the u.n. should take responsibility. the dutch soldiers who are under a u.n. mandate there is no question about that now the other hand. i think maybe somebody is trying to shift the blame from the u.n. to a member state and this is tricky business because if you are it is liable to one lawsuit it may be why would a lawsuit all over the world at the end of the day it was under the u.n. flag that the whole mission was being run and the you one had the responsibility for demilitarizing cerebral however and we have testimony of dutch soldiers several of the soldiers who actually said that when they try to demilitarize with. this arm of the muslim fighters actually they received instructions from new york from the seat of the u.n. to go easy on would be militarization so at the end of the day the dutch were left
2:13 pm
holding the barracks sort of speak there were they were very to shoulder the blame . we also have plenty of other stories available for you on our website that's dot com online all the time here's a quick look at what's there for you at the moment find out how laser pens have become considered as dangerous as in russia's republic of chechnya whose leader has burned the devices. north artie catches up with an italian marble marvel who can make the stone magically stay afloat and even fly people even more of up there at r.t. because. the accident of japan's fukushima facility triggered safety fears around the world forcing some countries to think twice about using nuclear energy for energy hungry
2:14 pm
china it seems its demands are so high there's simply no alternative as henry morton reports it's focusing instead on developing new technologies to make atomic plants safer with the global spotlight firmly back on the safety of nuclear power following japan's tsunami and the problems at the fukushima daiichi plant china is looking at spearheading efforts to make the industry safer and much safer the chinese are investing millions in research into reactors powered by the elements and metal proponents say as common as lead and one which despite some concerns would lead to power plants with fewer safety issues as well as other benefits. thore in based reactors certainly have advantages release from the story and is greener than from uranium to by products from using story in a less toxic than from uranium and it's much harder to make weapons from those by products or you. public outcry following the problems at the fukushima plant led to
2:15 pm
beijing putting a freeze on approvals of all new nuclear power stations and safety checks out the twenty seven currently under construction however with chinese electricity consumption growing at more than five percent a year and its current reliance on fossil fuels to generate that unsustainable it's unlikely the crisis in japan will dampen china's thirst for nuclear power. it's impossible for china to give up nuclear energy and china needs to make changes to its energy structure which is closely linked to the need to reduce pollution carbon emissions and the overall direction of chinese development other new energies have no advantage in either techniques or resources. no one in china is under any illusions that the country desperately needs to find alternative clean ways to generate electricity the current reliance on coal which provides some eighty percent of chinese energy needs cost the economy more than two hundred billion dollars a year through air pollution alone and while beijing is investing heavily in our
2:16 pm
but will turn it into energy supplies nuclear power is seen as the best bet by the chinese government the problem facing authorities though is trying to convince a sometimes jittery public that nuclear energy is a safe alternative so they are investing millions of dollars into thorin research like this in order to try and lay those fears to rest in so doing they may be showing the rest of the world a new path to clean energy and water and r.t. beijing. former i.m.f. chief dominique strauss kahn is facing fresh charges of sexual assault which have been filed by a french writer she claims she was attacked in two thousand and three these noise say they will sue for slander comes this trial because new york's sex assault case is reportedly on the verge of collapse as prosecutors question his accuser's credibility well for analysis of stress current situation i'm now joined live by robert zaretsky he's a professor of french history at the university of houston on his college road
2:17 pm
thanks so much for joining us live there on your webcam now these new sexual assault charges only emerged just as the new york case apparently started falling apart what do you make of the timing here well. and still to say are not just i'm not a lawyer. but in a way it's misleading to say that they're only just emerging they started to emerge several years ago. tristan in the novel that she wrote five years ago are presenting an account of of this attack or this alleged attack and are those she didn't name aren't strong kind is the attacker it was a well known secret in paris that is that she was the one you for the on did attack according to her account and for the last. three four years in paris it has been widely accepted that. that something happened between
2:18 pm
respond and dominique strauss kahn. and so what is happening now nine years after the fact is well one can say that they're just getting under the ten year limit on filing a criminal charge against some extra time and also i think david can be her lawyer was very clear that he didn't want his client's case to be in any way attached to the case that is now unraveling in new york by the. chambermaid who is accused. of a great let's not get involved with the legal aspects but what about the general context of a political assassination with the news of these cases by want to see it if you were to subscribe to that theory who would you say could be behind this. well there are there are
2:19 pm
a number of obvious candidates i should say that i don't subscribe to it but if i were just of scott's subscribed to it clearly it would be asked sarkozy's party to un peu would be sarkozy himself you could be. some of his competitor it's in the socialist party so. i could really talk it's i don't think it's political sasa nation and i think it really is a case of political suicide i really think there. is out of the origins of this case. and at the end of the day. when i say go for it out there on it are up but it's a political suicide but there are some saying this could actually pave the way to the french presidency. it could. but to my mind it's inconceivable. according to french accounts of the last three four days and they are impressionistic no polls have yet been taken but it seems clear
2:20 pm
as far as the soundings. can tell us that women are beginning to move oh wait in droves from dominique strauss kahn. it's significant that tristan banged on some other and months and months of rape who is a fairly important figure in the socialist party and who urged her daughter back in two thousand and three not to say anything about the attack has now come out of the closet and insists that stress can and is sexual habits have been long known among socialists are one amended by nobody said anything about their own. so she may emerge a free man but whether his freedom is going to lead to the elisa is a completely different story and a number of women in fact if you take a look it's just her days and what are so young in france are appalled at
2:21 pm
the. the elephants which is what they call it which they call the grand old men of the socialist party are plotting their class in one another on a path right now because stress can seems to be on the verge of of being liberated from new york city's our judicial system where it's very interesting to hear what you have to say thanks so much for your time robert there at the professor of history at the university of houston on the cover thanks for joining us thank you bill. it's a rare and incurable disease and in russia suffer say it's ignored by the medical establishment known as means children have skin so delicate that even just a simple touch can break it off. the families are coping with illness you may find some of the images in this report disturbing. she likes dancing and no one would guess the amount of pain lisa goes through to make these simple movements lisa has a rare genetic condition at her mother's billows or even that makes her skin less
2:22 pm
thin as a butterfly when a slide coach or a hug can cause painful blistering that takes a long time to heal leaving the skin even more fragile. around the world sufferers like liza are known as butterfly children however in russia it's as if they don't exist right your group of doctors simply don't know of the disease and when you tell them what it is they might have heard of it but they don't know how to do it he knew he's only five which she already knows her diagnosis better than any doctor her mother knows there is no cure with proper medication her daughter could lead an almost normal life but it's way too expensive. it's such a rare disease that it's pretty much been forgotten about there's no streets that pool it so there's no money and no specialists. none of those are dermatologist and admits she's become a specialist by default no one else is dealing with patients but the mothers say
2:23 pm
her advice can conflict with what they've learned from abroad. thought well it's a very complex disease and so few patients suffering from it any doctor that would take it up would have to become a very narrow specialist i myself am tied up in many other places so i don't have much time for these patients. two year old nasty is a clear example of what good care and access to proper treatment can do for a butterfly child a mother says she's probably the only girl in russia who from the very first days of her life was taken care of properly according to international standards when she was twenty five days old i took her away from one of the best maternity wards in the country her stomach and feet were all and the marks of the doctor's fingers as to her skin back then she did look locally be patient ever since nasty has lived a life of protection her medication costs roughly one hundred thousand rubles more than three thousand those per month she has three people constantly looking after
2:24 pm
her including her mother julia says life expectancy for such kids in russia is very low and she would do anything to make her daughter's life long unhappy. that she's my beautiful and long status princess and if there is a plea that can hurt my princess i'll take them all away no matter what the cost. julie is also behind a newly created foundation to help other children now people from all over the country are calling her and it seems the number of severing children is far greater than the previously estimated one hundred beds for lisa she bravely takes on life with a smile despite her deteriorating state as a sign of trust she told me her biggest dream then maybe few children with this disease in russia but each of them needs all the support they can get they may have learned to live with their condition but just like elisa we'll dream of one day waking up to a life without paying. r.t.

greece making the country will productive selling off state assets reducing the size of the public sector getting private ownership of enterprise but going again that is the key to the financial health of cory's and yet in a way that reform program gets ignored because we have these dramas every day we have riots we have protests we have late night votes and all of that excitement to just get to greece from actually so over from sort of week to week is almost. means we forget about the underlying core problems of the economy that need to be addressed. now let's take a look at the markets prices continue to climb stopping in today's draw that's all speculation there's growing demand for oil in both the u.s. and china the world's two largest energy users light sweet is trading at ninety seven dollars a barrel and brant is at over one hundred thirteen dollars a barrel the star stocks of the u.s. trade mixed after the dow jones industrial average had its best we can two years he
